24 Hours to Give Where You Live
The Parkinson Association of the Rockies needs your support to reach our goal of raising $25,000 in one day!
On Tuesday, December 10th Coloradans will come together again to raise millions of dollars for nonprofits like ours. 

 

Every Cent Counts! 

Give to your favorite, approved Colorado Gives charities through the website www.ColoradoGives.org  and really make it count! All credit card and processing fees will be covered by Community First Foundation - so 100% of every dollar you donate will go directly to the Parkinson Association. And, when you give online any time on December 10th, your donation will be increased by the FirstBank Incentive Fund.

 

Worried you'll forget? 

No need to stress! Click here to pre-schedule your donation today! After entering the amount of your gift, be sure to check the box "Schedule a donation for Colorado Gives Day 12/10/2013."
